Another day, another The Batman rumor.
Since it was announced, it’s been difficult to nail down anything concrete about Matt Reeves’s take on the Caped Crusader besides the fact that it follows a younger version of Bruce Wayne. One thing is for sure, however, and it’s that this film has endured an excrutiatingly long development cycle.
Through a report by Revenge of the Fans, we might finally have some idea of what’s been causing the hold-up:
Now the second draft has come in and, from the sound of it, Reeves has amped up the spectacle a bit. I don’t know what motivated him to bring a little more explosiveness to the proceedings- maybe the studio has loosened the reins on his budget a bit thanks to Aquaman?- but I hear the action quotient for the film will lie somewhere between Se7en and The Dark Knight.
Again, it’s important to take this with a grain of salt. Anything and everything has been said about The Batman at this point, but it is somewhat relieving to hear that the success of Aquaman may have emboldened Warner Bros. to throw a little more in the way budget to Matt Reeves. After all, his work directing Dawn of the Planet of the Apes & War for the Planet of the Apes is some of the boldest blockbuster film-making of recent memory and giving Reeves more money to achieve his vision seems like a smart move.
What do you make of this rumor about The Batman? Do you think adding more spectacle will help or hurt the film in the long run?
